No GOP Donor Left Behind

A lot of places have featured the Associated Press article, Iraq Whistleblowers Vilified, Demoted, about what happened to people who complained about waste and contracting fraud in Iraq, but a more complete run down on the entire mess is available [via Seeing The Forest] in the Rolling Stone article, The Great Iraq Swindle.

Everything the Hedgemony has done is geared towards giving the US Treasury to GOP donors. While a big splash was made about the two sisters who charged the Pentagon a million bucks for a couple of washers; that was chump change to an outfit like KBR, who ripped off more than that on their laundry and catering every week.

Billions of dollars are unaccounted for. This is in addition to the billions the contractors were ripping off, I talking about billions of dollars that don’t show up anywhere. You cannot trust the GOP with government money. They have no budgeting or financial management skills. Every time you vote for them the US ends up with a huge budget deficit.

$30 billion for reconstruction, nearly $9 billion of it unaccounted for. bah. chump change. that’s $100 per american citizen [$29, if you’re only counting the unaccounted for]. i can afford to give that to a few sleazy jerks who are just out to make a buck. [/7]

on the other hand, that would have got us halfway to the estimated $56.5 million needed to pay for schip and medicaid for every currently uninsured child and pregnant woman in this country for the next five years.

i’m not sure if i’m more mad or depressed.
